Healthy Monday: Fight Stress With Exercise

healthy monday headerThe rush of anxiety and pent-up energy that can result from stress is part of your body’s natural defense mechanisms. While the desire to fight or flee is helpful in emergencies, too much of this tension can negatively impact your health. Instead of bottling it up, get it out with exercise! Releasing excess energy with physical activity is a healthy way to alleviate built-up muscle tension and other symptoms.

This week, after a long day, get active and aim for moderate intensity exercise. It may seem counter intuitive, but moving more will help you relax!
